Valve manufacturer moves HQ from Rock Hill to Charlotte


Bonomi North America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the worldwide Bonomi Group located in Brescia, Italy, announced Tuesday that it has relocated its corporate office from Rock Hill to Charlotte.

Bonomi created 11 new jobs in Charlotte with planned growth of five additional jobs over the next three years, according to the news release from the Charlotte Chamber.
Bonomi purchased the facility on 750 Imperial Court, which it plans to expand in the near future to add further assembly operations.

"We chose to relocate to Charlotte after outgrowing our existing space in Rock Hill. Charlotte is the ideal location for us – it's in the heart of our customer base, offering the international and professional setting a world leader like Bonomi requires for further growth," said Alberto Malaguti, general manager of Bonomi North America in the release.

The Bonomi Group of Italy consists of three separate and fully automated valve and actuator manufacturing centers. Rubinetterie Bresciane Bonomi (RB) was founded in 1901 in Lumezzane, Italy, as a faucet manufacturer. Today RB is housed in a 250,000-square-foot space with a fully automated brass forging, machining, and complete production and assembly unit for brass ball and check valves.

Valpres is located in Marcheno, Italy. Founded in 1978, the company occupies 160,000 square feet of manufacturing space and specializes in carbon and stainless steel ball valves in threaded, weld end, cryogenic and flanged ends through ANSI class 1500.

Valbia, founded in 1995 and also located in Lumezzane, Italy, is housed in a 50,000-square-foot facility and is already considered one of the leading actuator manufacturing centers in the world. Valbia manufactures both pneumatic and electric industrial actuators and has been marketing them worldwide for more than 25 years under the Valbia name and as private label products.

Bonomi North America, formerly Bonomi USA, started in business in Rock Hill, in late 2003 to combine and market the RB, Valpres and Valbia product lines as a singular source of valves and actuators for the commercial, institutional and industrial markets.

Bonomi North America also has a location in Oakville, Ontario Canada.

Now in Charlotte, Bonomi is one of the fastest-growing valve manufacturers in North America due to its ability to stock millions of dollars of specialized products and for its immediate delivery capability.

The company is the only manufacturer of low-torque, high-performance, direct mount ball valves and pneumatic and electric actuators, which are mated to one another for long-term performance, according to the release.
